Vegan soul food is essentially a heavy metal cover album of Motown classics. (2:04)

OKAY, THE MORE IMPORTANT ISSUESOF THE DAY--VEGAN SOUL FOOD.

WHAT THE... ?(laughter)

REALLY?

REALLY, VEGANS, YOU DAREBRING THAT INTO THE EARTH?

REALLY, VEGA-- THAT DOESN'T EVENMAKE ANY SENSE.

LET'S THINK ABOUT THISFOR A MOMENT, OKAY?

WHAT'S THE HISTORYOF SOUL FOOD?

SLAVES WERE GIVENTHE WORST PARTS OF THE ANIMALS,

PIG'S FEET, THINGS LIKE THAT.

THEY HAD TO COVER ITIN LARD AND SPICES,

WHATEVER THEY COULDTO MAKE THAT TASTE DELICIOUS.

SOUL FOOD IS STEEPED

IN AFRICAN-AMERICAN HISTORYAND TRADITION.

THEN YOU HAVE VEGAN FOOD.

NOW VEGANS ALSO START WITHA LIMITED NUMBER OF INGREDIENTS,

BUT, ARGUABLY,WHAT THEY END UP WITH

TASTES WORSE THAN WHATTHEY STARTED WITH.

(laughter)

THAT'S ARGUABLE.THAT'S ARGUABLE.

I ARGUE IT BECAUSE IT'S TRUE.

(laughter)

SOME WOULD ARGUE OTHERWISE,AND THEY'RE WRONG

BECAUSE I HAVE HADVEGAN THANKSGIVING...(audience groans)

OF TOFURKEY AND SOY GRAVY.

AND IT'S NOT TO SAYTHAT THANKSGIVING

WILL EVER JUSTIFY THE GENOCIDEOF THE NATIVE AMERICANS,

BUT VEGAN THANKSGIVING,

THAT'S JUST SPITTINGON THE GRAVES, ISN'T IT?

(laughter)

(applause)

THANK YOU.

NOW, AGAIN,THE BIGGER POINT HERE

IS VEGANS DON'T USEANIMAL PRODUCTS IN THEIR FOOD,

AND THAT'S A KEY PARTOF SOUL FOOD.

THAT IS AN ESSENTIAL PARTOF SOUL FOOD, ANIMAL PRODUCTS.

THEREFORE, VEGAN SOUL FOODIS, ESSENTIALLY,

A HEAVY-METAL COVER ALBUMOF MOTOWN CLASSICS.

(laughter)

HEAVY METAL IS ROCK MUSIC

STRIPPED OF ITS HISTORICBLACK ELEMENTS.

IT CAN'T PROPERLY COVER MOTOWN.

IF I SAW A HEAVY-METALCOVER ALBUM OF MOTOWN CLASSICS,

I WOULD NOT BUY IT,UNLESS, OF COURSE,

THE RECORDWAS CALLED "VEGAN SOUL FOOD,"(laughter)

AT WHICH POINT,IT IS HIGH-CONCEPT...(laughter)

AND DADDY MUST HAVE IT.

DADDY MUST HAVE IT.
